Dear Colleagues --
I have just returned from China. A very interesting trip. A separate report will follow.
This note regards recent spiking in raw material prices from China, specifically vitamin C, B vitamins and certain amino acids. ...
Here is the update:
We continue to hear from members that they are seeing and are being affected by these price spikes. Why is this happening? We made numerous inquiries while in China and heard different reasons including:
Advice to members: This is real and appears that even if pricing eases in coming months, it will settle at a new, higher, average price and likely there will be fewer suppliers. Continued tightening of global supplies of vitamin C, B vitamins and other select nutrients is to be expected.
We will keep you posted. Please keep us posted on your end so we can calibrate and share information.
